For the first time since the 1998 season, the Kansas University women's basketball team has advanced to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Tournament. Last (TUE) night, the KU women pulled-off a major upset by defeating 3rd-seeded Delaware 70-to-64. The victory is especially sweet, considering that the Jayhawks were one of the last at-large teams selected for the tournament. KU was led in scoring by junior point guard Angel Goodrich, who contributed 27 points. It's the first Sweet 16 appearance for KU since the 1998 season and third appearance all time. With the win over Delaware, the Jayhawks improved to 21-12 on the season. KU will face Tennessee this Saturday in Des Moines, Iowa.
Elsewhere, in women's action... Pittsburg State wasn't as fortunate at the NCAA Division II Tournament in San Antonio. The women of Pitt State fell to Shaw of North Carolina, 61-to-58.
